VBL - Integrated Condition Monitoring

VBL – Integrated Condition Monitoring (Perth)

Program Overview

Cost effective operational reliability and safety are key challenges of industry groups operating in today’s economic environment.

Making informed maintenance and  operational decisions are critical to this process, as is having the awareness, the right information, system integration, and training to be sustainably informed.

It is estimated that at least one third of all  maintenance costs are wasted as a direct result of unnecessary or improper maintenance. Add the cost of unnecessary down time and production loss and the equation of sustainability remains a greater challenge than it need be.

The VBL introduces important principals and application of best practice Condition Monitoring technologies. It focuses on important, fundamental elements of theory and application to improve operational safety, operational reliability, and your bottom line.

Learn the importance of proactive condition monitoring to identify and mitigate operating risk, patterns of failure and sustainably improve reliability and machine lifecycles.

The most successful maintenance programs optimise the application and management of Condition Monitoring technologies in relation to fault detection and identification; risk assessment and mitigation; and maintenance planning.

Integrated Condition Monitoring Technologies include:

  • Vibration Analysis
  • Lubrication Management & Analysis
  • Infrared Thermography
  • Ultrasound

Understand the principles, techniques, and equipment for collecting, analysing and acting on critical condition monitoring information.
